Re: Useful Stuff--Finger Nail Polish Bottles

As a follow up to my earlier post, I overlooked mentioning that after I filled the nail polish bottles with the various finish materials, I wiped down the threads well and then applied a thin coating of Petroleum Jelly to the threads. This keeps the inevitable little drips from the bottle neck from locking up the caps when the bottles are re-closed. (The same trick can be used on the protruding lips on the undersides of paint and varnish cans without adversely effecting the contents.)


"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
